88 days to go: A long time ago... before the digital age!
Growing up in the 1970s, we didn’t have such things as DVD or video players, and Star Wars was never shown on TV. As some of you may remember, the closest thing to seeing the film again in those days was to listen to the Read-Along albums and look at the handful of photos in the accompanying book. I had all three of the original movies on vinyl LPs, along with their picture books. The records were well-worn, through being played so much. To this day I can tell you where the scratches were on the vinyl and where I would have to get up and move the needle along when it got stuck!
